Al-Ain - Asian champions Kashima Antlers beat Mexican side CD Guadalajara 3-2 in the quarter-finals of the Club World Cup on Saturday to set up a semi-final against Real Madrid.

Guadalajara roared into an early lead thanks to Angel Zaldivar's third-minute goal but Ryota Nagaki equalised in Al-Ain.

Kashima went ahead through Serginho's 69th minute penalty and Hiroki Abe secured victory, making Leo Silva's own goal deep in injury time academic.

Kashima's meeting with Real on Wednesday will be a re-run of the 2016 final, which the Spanish giants won 4-2 after extra-time.

Real will travel to the United Arab Emirates after their La Liga match against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.
